Very fresh and green, and always smells really good. I've always been very happy with Sweet Meadow Farm timothy hay, and now that I don't live near Sherborn, MA any longer (where they are based), Chewy's shipping makes buying it a lot more cost effective. I used to just go to the farm and pick up a bale or a mini-bale, but the 9 pound boxes work quite well. Both SMF and Chewy have really good return policies in case you get an unsatisfactory shipment (as I've read some people have - it happens sometimes) - they are always veryfast to replace it.
I Really Wanted To Like This Hay
on Sep 13, 2021
I really wanted to like this hay. It is affordable, I can have it delivered to my doorstep & it's exactly the right size for my needs. However, the quality of the hay is generally not the greatest and often incredibly poor. Anyone who has an animal that relies on hay as their main source of nutrition understands the struggle to find quality hay consistently. I do not recommend you use this hay for anything including bedding. This last box arrived completely rotten all the way through.
My piggies looooove it
on Jul 21, 2021
I've been buying hay from Sweet Meadow Farm for years - even before they started selling through Chewy. My piggies love it! At my most I've had 4 boys and it's so convenient to get it in bulk.
One reivew below said it looked weird, floppy, and didn't have any seed pods... so I had to come in and defend my fav farm lol. It's not supposed to have those because it's 2nd cut hay. If you're looking for stiffer hay and more seed puffs they do have 1st cut, but that's too stiff for our needs. My senior boy can't do 1st cut hay anymore - he had a lot of problems with getting poked in the eye frequently and had a lot of trouble eating it. This 2nd cut is perfect for him. My younger piggie loves itI've been buying hay from Sweet Meadow Farm for years - even before they started selling through Chewy. My piggies love it!

All in all, your pets' needs might vary. If this doesn't work for you, try another type!… more
It’s okay, not what I was expecting.

I bought Oxbow brand originally from the pet store (it smelled amazing and was green) when that ran out I went with this brand and received it like this. It’s brown and had a different smell even though it claims to be the same hay as what I got from Oxbow. I didn’t realize it was second cut either. Very flat and brown. My pigs are eating it, so that’s a plus. I’ll obviously use this entire box but will probably second guess purchasing this again.
Not this time
on Aug 25, 2021
This is the 2nd time ordering this particular hay. the first time it was soft and my bunnies loved it. This time it’s very hard and sharp like a blade. My bunnies don’t seem to be enjoying it at all and I’m wondering what I need to do now. I am going to contact chewy for a refund or maybe another box. Maybe just a bad cut.
Wear gloves when handling it.
on Jul 14, 2021
My bunnies love this hay. With that said, wear gloves when handling it. Last night, I went to give the bunnies hay, so I picked up a big ball of it and there was a flat dead mouse in it. My husband flushed the mouse and the rest of the hay went in the compost pile. I will still buy it, but will wear gloves just in case it happens again. Not much you can do, it does grow in a field. The Chewy rep was awesome and he had a new box shipped right away. Thank you very much for your help.
High quality hay!
on Aug 28, 2021
This hay seemed very fresh and high quality, and the bunny I'm fostering loved it. She is a smaller bun with a good appetite and this box lasted her over 2 months.

I decided to try this hay since it was a large amount for a good price. So disappointed! It Everything was brown or moldy with a bunch of dried up sticks and leaves! What a waste!
Rabbit loves it

I decided to buy this for my bunny instead of my usual Oxbow because it's cheaper. This hay is great. It looks and smells fresh with no hard/pokey pieces. Much softer than regular hay. My bunny loves it, she eats it all instead of throwing most of it around. Much less mess for me is another plus, would definitely recommend!
Bale hay piece
on Jul 24, 2021
I had ordered this a few months ago to try for my guinea pigs. all it was is a few flakes of hay from a bale and overpriced. It was poor quality and my guinea pigs hated it. Don't waste your money on this garbage.
